U.S. households can order one set of four free at-home antigen COVID-19 tests from USPS.com by clicking here.
One order is allowed per residential address. USPS will begin shipping the orders in late January. Tests will typically ship within 7-12 days of ordering, officials said.
The free tests are part of a response by Biden Administration to address a surge in COVID-19 cases and a shortage in tests. On Friday, the Administration said it purchased a half-billion tests for this mailing effort, and is purchasing another half billion to distribute.
The Biden Administration also announced that, as of last Saturday, private health insurance companies are required to cover eight free at-home COVID-19 tests per covered individual per month.
